WOWO 22 April 2021

Another week comes flying around. Where does the time go? Write-on members, these are the last few days for sending in material for The Write-on Anthology 2022. Oh yes! Do you remember when 1 May 2021 was first mentioned as a deadline? May? The First of May? Sure that’s a long way off! Plenty of time to write lots of stories and poems and even some songs and memoirs! But first? A cup of tea…

Now, look! The First of May is almost upon us! Nine.. yes.. 9 days left to submit material for this year’s Anthology. The good news is that not everyone left it until the last minute. Already, we have enough material to create quite a substantial tome. However, in the interest of fairness towards all, we will wait until midnight on 1 May, to make the final selections.

This week, we have an abundance of material to present to you. Let’s look at the proposed WOWO for Thursday 22 April.
